Times Square.Friday. Late afternoon. January 18, 2012.
For about an hour, some RUDE Theatre-of-the-Absurd took over one block in Times Square. Was the dildo really necessary?
The reason for the counter-protest was posted at Huff Po
“The Westboro “Baptist” “Church” plans to take its offensive picketing techniques to Times Square. From the group’s website:
New York City is the epicenter of international commerce. These people care more about the almighty dollar than the Almighty God. New York also represents fag central. Millions of fags and their enablers proudly promote their filth in and around Times Square. WBC will shed some Gospel light on that mess. Already, counter protests have been organized, mainly by members of the New York gay community, to block the group, or at least to create a human wall to prevent signs and slogans from reaching those in the bustling tourist mecca, according to Queerty.”

This is a call to all queers, ‘fag-enablers’, tranarchists, anarchists and allies.
And a counter-protest plea for civilized behavior:
This event page specifically says to those who plan attending to provide a peaceful protest. I know that there are a ton of strong feelings against them (the WBC)…. every person who plans to attend the WBC’s protest and provide a counter protest are expected to act professional… Ladies and Gentlemen let’s remember to be Ladies and Gentlemen and be better than they are. DO NOT throw any thing or make physical contact with, disturb, or harass anyone in the WBC. This page is about LOVE for mankind and to stop harassment not adding more and stooping down to the level of the WBC. Thank you.
Our objective is simple.To make the people of New York City smile.This is NOT an angry protest. We are not trying to stoop down to their level. There should be no violence of any sort. We’re fighting ignorance with peace, LOVE, and humor!
Seems ANONYMOUS didn’t get the message, since their counter-protest was VILE and OBSCENE; certainly NOT HUMOROUS.
It was very disrespectful of the Christian Faith.
A counter-protest not likely to win friends in new places nor will it educate the passersby to the Westboro Cult’s Offenses; not likely while shouting obscenities about Christ.
Westboro “Baptist” “Church” is a VILE CULT. They are NOT Christians. They are NOT Baptists. They are a hate-filled quasi-religion that has no conscience when it comes to Sandy Hook or our fallen military…they mock all that is good at the same time that they attempt to attack evil. They have themselves become EVIL, yet just two lame individuals came out this afternoon to represent WBC. Very odd.
Today the group that won the award for most obscene public display was NOT in the local Gay Pride Parade, it was in Times Square and it wasn’t Westboro. It was the very, VERY obscene ANONYMOUS whose usual obscenity-laced protests against Scientology happen just around the corner. But, now they were countering the Fred Phelps Cultists by screeching their usual hatred and intolerance. Hy-Po-Crites ’cause I’m betting the farm it’ll be a cold-day-in-hell before they show some real brass and mock Islam.
Can you imagine if this had been Mohammed…with signs telling the Truth about Pissslam:
Islam MURDERS HOMOSEXUALS.
ISLAM Murders young rape victims
ISLAM uses children as Sex-Slaves.
ISLAM murders CHRISTIANS and JEWS
No one dared (and we all know why). Instead, we had lots of nudity when Anonymous was joined by a few ‘naked ladies’ advertising the revival of “Let My People Come”.
Ad a lot of horny tourists got more than an eyeful when an Anonymous female got in to act by stripping off her bra. (see video below) It was insane.
The video of the Anonymous Cultists. Can’t imagine they thought this could be considered a Recruitment Day Event. There was lots meant to offend everyone, and they did. (watch in HD)
Wondering what was accomplished by all of this obscenity? Nada.
Except….the police… getting A LOT of overtime….
And lastly, a slide show of a few more pictures:
